Getting Crafty

Next week I'll be assisting at a kids' ornament sewing workshop at NLArts, so my daughter and I did a test run of some ideas. These 2 are my daughter's. I heat-transferred some copy-right free image photocopies onto muslin, then we colored them in with fabric markers, cut them out, layered them with felt backs and sewed. They all have some polyfil stuffing. Some more than others...
These 2 are mine. The camel has french knots around the perimeter. The monogram was done by stitching right sides together, turning, stuffing, slipstitching closed. I like the smaller scale of that one.
Now that Thanksgiving is over, everyone turn their thoughts toward Christmas. Anybody doing a handmade Christmas?
